Everton failed to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League last season. The Toffees, though, are a big club in England, and fans will expect the team to challenge for a top-six finish in the league during the 2016-17 campaign.

Koeman is a good manager, and he proved during his time at Southampton that he can work in a limited budget.

It will be interesting to see which players that the Dutchman signs for Everton in the summer transfer window.
